Going out on a road trip with little ones can be exciting for many, while for others it can be a daunting and challenging experience. While some babies fall asleep as soon as the engine starts, others have a tough time being in a car for hours. Whether you’re hitting the road for a vacation or simply a quick grocery trip, keeping them entertained and safe is important. Mum and dad, what do you have in the car? Some parents pull out all the stops to keep their little one busy by investing in plenty of car seat toys. So, if you’re planning to hit the road and looking for fun and interactive toys to help keep your baby calm and entertained, Peekaboo Baby have got you covered.
Buying a toy specifically designed for car seats and strollers can help us focus on the road. Depending on your baby's age, you can use interactive toys to keep them entertained throughout the drive. If you’re looking for a toy for your 0 to 3 months old, our collection of Lamaze clips on baby activity toys lets you hook directly onto strollers, carriers, and even nappy bags.
While your little one's seat must be kept rear-facing in the backseat of your car for safety and protection, they tend to look for you. Having a car seat toy attached to the headrest of your car seat facing onto them will focus their attention and forget you for a little while. Choose toys that have cute and colourful character details like the range of Very Hungry Caterpillar stroller toys that are loads of fun and offer engaging activities. Babies can see themselves and giggle in the mirror attached, the teether, crinkle, and rattle sounds are all adorable entertainers.
Over the years, books have been mum's answer to several road trip situations when they want their child to be occupied. But because infants or toddlers are curious and tend to chew everything they grab, giving a soft book is a great option. Why not try a soft book with multiple textures to explore, a chewy corner, and a clip so you can take it on the go. Simply clip and let your little wanderer enjoy.
Dangling toys that have bells or other sorts of sounds can get your baby’s attention and attach to their strollers, but since the seat handle of the car seat has to be kept behind away from the baby’s head during a trip, you can find the one that attaches to the strap so you can connect to the car.
There are many more tips and tricks you can use while taking your babies on a long drive. A car seat toy with music is a good option or you can start singing a song when your little one starts to get upset and irritated. Never mind if you sound like an untuned melody or bonus if you’ve got a golden voice, your baby’s been tuned into your voice since the moment they could hear you.
Mums are great entertainers when it comes to their babies. But it can be quite tough when you’re on a road trip. Some ways to keep your baby happy are by giving entertaining car seat toys just like we’ve mentioned above. Finding your baby’s favourite music, telling a story, singing a song, and bringing some snacks are fun ways to keep your baby entertained while on the road.
Though car toys are great to hang in your baby stroller, unfortunately, you cannot attach car toys from the carrier handle. Your babies could pull them off and hurt themselves. There are plenty of entertainment options while travelling though including soft books and travel blankets featuring popular animal characters.
